6:47 am
light. it will be pretty decent. out to the west, there is some precipitation. most of that will evan wait before it gets here. a few of shows showers could make it into our viewing area later today. first of all, we've got a weak trough of cold air that is making its way eastward. for today , we'll be cooler than we were yesterday. tomorrow be much chillier with highs only in the low 50s. some of you might top out in the upper 40s tomorrow. forecast for today look like this. partly sunny skies. maybe a brief shower here or there. for the most part, no, but maybe. 57 57degrees for your high today. top is a cool day for your friday, 52 for your high. that's it. saturday though, nice, sunny
6:48 am
and 60. sunday, near 06 with mostly sunny skies and monday, we begun a little warm-up. the beginning part of next week upper 60s and then after that, the bottom drops out. >> let's just leave that for next week. at least it will feel a little more like thanksgiving should. >> by thanksgiving, yes, it will. we'll talk about that later. that is a look at what's happening with the weather. it is time now for ask the weather guys, the segment where tucker barnes and i put our big heads together to answer your most pressing questions, weather-related or otherwise. today's question comes from jerry in woodstock, virginia. he says we've all heard so much about prince william and his engagement this week and he has a question about the prince's name. er ask has his first name prince and his last name william or what. why don't we hear what that you
6:49 am
are last names are. no disrespect intended. >> this is what i said earlier. do you think they have a last name? uh-huh. >> what do you think it is? >> i cheated. >> you cheated? you looked already. i i am in the leaving my notes on the table anymore. >> i didn't look at your notes. you looked into the computer. >> i can't play either because i heard tucker talking too laud oraller. i don't like to look ahead and cheat. >> he was talking about it during the commercial. here is the deal, jerry. technically, they don't have a last name. why not? because they don't need them. etch knows them by their first names, prince harry, prince william as you see there. prince charles, queen elizabeth and this is how queen victoria, prince albert. they just go by the their first names. however, and i should say they've been known by the names, the royal family in england has been named nonby the names of the countries or
6:50 am
regions over which they ruled so their last names were rather complicated. before 1917, there was no surname for the royal family, only the name of the house or dynasty to which they belonged. so you want to show you what the current royal family's original quote, unquote last name was and i'm not making this up. this is not a joke. can we go to the name. there is your royal family. the house of windsor. that is what they are known by now. this was the original name. that is the house they belonged to, sax e-coburg, gotha. in 1917, people were grumbling that it sounded too german so they dropped to. they simply dropped to. some committee got together and decided what are we going to call this family. they considered different names, last names for the
6:51 am
family tewing the name steweddor stewart and the name england. they came one windsor. so it is just a made-up name. they are now the house of windsor. when queen elizabeth married prince philip, these last name was mountbatten. she considered for i time calling her heirs mountbatten- windsor. they are the house of windsor. when queen elizabeth signs official documents, she usually signs elizabeth r. the r stands for regina. that is not a real last name. that simply means queen. so a lot of her documents are signed elizabeth r. so to answer your question, it is
6:52 am
very complicated. the last name was cored saxe- coburg-gotha. it was changed to windsor. >> the producer saying at his grad situation, they called him william wales. >> one of the early early monarchs became prince of wales. >> i have a connection to the royals. >> what would that be? >> my great uncle in india fought for the british because the british used to rule india. so he fought for the british during word war i and he was killed in the line of duty in service and so we have a letter which i have frame at home from queen mary thanking his family and him for his service to -- very cool. >> my mother had it tucked away. >> we have to month on. you got a quick thought.
6:53 am
>> i want to say i thought this was ask the weather guys. >> you had to do it by yourself yesterday. >> he complain because he had to do everything yesterday. >> so what prs you are saying is that prince william will not come up and a hey, how you doing, i'm bill windsor. >> no. >> let's move on to julie wright. >> we have a lot to talk about. let's start off with the crew in sky fox. if you are traveling eastbound being you will find the accident activity involving least five cars out at business 24. that has traffic squeezing by to the left. we do have those delays at 29 gainesville. delays out of college park headed around towards what was the accident scene. 29 at fairland, the accident on the shoulder.
6:54 am
look for delays as you travel in from briggs cheney. this is the live shot of 66. it is a little blurry and v- d.o.t. is trying to fix that for you. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic. the gallery at the national air and space museum is getting a makeover. >> it reopens to the public tomorrow and this morning, holly morris is getting a sneak peek. we'll check in with her after the break.
6:55 am
